number1guy - No, the fuel is (likely) propane or natural gas. I imagine a body provides a net heat loss.
They also cremate horses, BTW. Talk about a waste of fuel!

Looks like pretty thin glass. Maybe he got the idea from the video of breaking a car side window by throwing a chip from a spark plug at it.

Nothing new. Every car going into or out of London has its license read and checked. And a lot of cop cars read plates as they drive around. I'm sure the technology is out there to do it privately fairly easily - the hard part is having access to the database.

Museums and zoos are laid out this way as well. Fine there, but annoying in a store. Their product names look like something from Dr. Seuss; I wish they'd be a bit more useful. But like most stores these days, they don't care how long the lineup is at the cash.

In Canada, at least, I think there are rules about how much of a particular currency is considered legal tender. You can't buy a car with pennies, for example (well, they could accept it if they want, but you can't demand a payment be accepted that way). Not sure about bills, though.

When type was manually set, typesetters used chunks of lead of two different widths, referred to as "em"s and "en"s, the width of the blank being the same as the letter m and n, respectively. I think these were mainly used between words in order to right-justify the text, but I also think the wider "em"s were used after a period to separate sentences.

If you think it looks like the moose is jumping over the car, you likely think all those pictures of folks pushing over the leaning tower of Pisa are real.

My first job in 1968 required white dress shirts (wear a pastel one and they'd send you home) with tie and dark pants. And that's in an office away from the public eye. What goes around, comes around.

Brian: Depends who took the picture, I imagine. If you look at it on GoogleEarth, it says it's a TerraMetrics image taken in 2010 (unlike what Google Maps says). The black/white seems to provide the detail, the color is added in lower resolution.

Around here, the stores are "encouraging" you to bag your own, by not helping until everything is rung up. So, either a lost art, or every customer gets to be a pro.

Cool. You can do this better, I think, if you use Picasa. Choose Create / Movie / From faces in selection. Picasa will auto-align the eyes. Do a video search on "picasa movie faces".

Only four million? Seems low.
I think here in Canada they can be hunted, but apparently aren't very edible. They need to engineer a tastier version.
A local park re-allowed dogs in order to scare them off.

Design concepts reality. Be good for heating up the counter top, though (hope yours isn't easily damaged). Or your hands, when you roll it up.

Guess the day-glo spandex crowd will have to upgrade their wardrobe. Neat idea, though, for folks who hate wearing helmets. But I think the cost will be high, and how do you keep the sensors from false triggering?

Hate it when someone replies to an email with a large attachment and sends me my attachment back with a comment such as "cool". With a slow connection, it's a pain. Please, delete the damn attachment before replying.
On a similar note, for idiots who can't use Google... http://lmgtfy.com/

Chances are it's a fake just to scare them off. Aside from that, if he uses an electric fencer, they run around 3-4Kv, non-lethal, but I sure wouldn't trust that the current wouldn't jump the gaps in MY pee stream! [In dry air, 20Kv can jump about 1cm, IIR]

Why the hell would you want to wash it, anyway? Did it get sprayed by a skunk? Rolled in the mud? Can't imagine it's a natural event in its life; and it might really piss it off.
